This week’s edition of our Apps of the Week roundup features a new personal finance tracking app with a gorgeous interface, the PPV app showing the fight everyone is going to be talking about this weekend, and a new social app with an AR twist. And as always, we’ve selected two interesting new games for you to check out.

Slope

Slope was designed from the ground up to be unlike any financial app you’ve ever seen. With its user friendly interface, Slope gives you the power to see your entire financial history at your fingertips. Lightning fast transaction input allows you to input expenses on the go and reconcile with your bank statement later. Other features include categories and tags, multiple account support, receipt storage and much more. There is a SlopePro subscription option, but it looks like most features are available without it. Slope is available for free.

Showtime PPV

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past 6 months, chances are you’ve heard about the fight coming up tonight between boxing legend Floyd Mayweather and MMA star Conor McGregor. There are a few ways to stream the fight, but the official way is via the SHOWTIME PPV app. It works on iPhone, iPad and Apple TV, and makes buying the fight as easy as an in-app purchase. Features will include the stream, fight-related news and behind-the-scenes look at the fighters. The app is free, of course, but the Main Event is going to cost you $100. Showtime PPV is available for free.

Mirage World

This is kind of a cool app, and somewhat relevant given all of the talk these days about VR and AR. Mirage World allows you to create and “leave” digital, interactive artwork in the real world. Think virtual graffiti. You can place gifs, objects, hostages, photos and drawings anywhere for others to see. Just create, post and share using the Mirage app, and your friends can view them and share their own. As with all newcomer social media apps, I am skeptical this will gain much traction, but the idea is interesting enough it might make it into bigger apps. Check it out! Mirage World is available for free.

Death Point

Death Point is a hardcore single-player, top-down, stealth shooter with dual stick control that will test your abilities at every level. Here’s the setup: only two from your group have survived—you (agent) and your operator. She is blocked somewhere within the enemy’s territory and you woke up in a prison, barely alive, but determined to get revenge. The countdown has started. Elimination sensors are already ticking in your heads. The mission success and your future depends solely on you. All you have to do is to find the girl and call for evacuation. Hurry up! Death Point is available for $6.

Cat Bird!

If Death Point isn’t really your style, then check out Cat Bird! It couldn’t be more opposite. This cute little platform adventure game sends you on an epic quest to help Cat Bird get home. You’ll venture through unique worlds hovering across pits, traps, enemies, and saw blades. But beware of the mighty guardians that block your path! Other game features include 40+ challenging levels, 3 epic bosses, stylish pixel art, and a beautiful soundtrack. Cat Bird! is available for free (with a single IAP).

    Argh, I’ve been hoping for a few really good suggestions lately and I keep getting Games. My country’s app store is completely riddled with games – almost the entire landing page and all the featured apps. It’s a bit frustrating finding really useful apps other than games lately. Can’t wait for iOS 11 when they can put all games in separate location to allow other types of apps to shine.
